the kick tunnel I just tore down here. tuck it in, mic up, seal it, and layer with a bunch of moving blankets that are $5.00 each at harbor freight tools.

Hey Hunter, we actually did use the blackspade on drums.
I forgot about that but chris the engineer here at Mant reminded me.
Used it as a kit mic above the kick between rack and floor and it sounded excelent
and provided that general perspective kit element that can be elusive to capture in a usable way and
also in front of the kick Back at the edge In the dog house and it sounded really good.

What are you using for cover? You just gave me an idea. Maybe that frame can hold together panels of 703 and just cover with moving blankets so the fiberglass does not go everywhere. Mass loaded vinyl might be to heavy but if you really want to isolate...

Use whatever works .
Typically a few moving blankets give plenty of iso.

Hi Rob,

I love the mixes on the fidlar record, they have a great balance if the scuzzy-ness and attitude of the band with certain hallmarks of the scene whilst still sounding big and getting the energy if the song across. Did you approach these mixes any differently to other mixes, how long did it take to mix, and how we're the quality of the recordings before they got to you?

Really appreciate your time spent answering questions on the records you've done here.

Well thats good that was the goal.
Scuzziness tude and with some added fidelity.
Approach was to keep the good and pump it up where it needed it.
Thats usually the approach isnt it?
Zac mixed the record all in the box and it sounded cool but it was pretty lo fi.
So we kept the vibe and just worked on certain elements where
It needed the love.
The drums and the low end.
Piped the drums thru some urei 811's
and miced the room.
And perhaps dialed in the distortion on certain elements further.
I think getting out the box and into a console helped as the different colors of
Transformers just natuarally added shape and girth or took off some of the bright digi nastiness
Where it got to much.
It was roughly a day a song to mix.
Boom

Power amps with the big power supply iron seem to have better low end than amps with the
Properly rated toroidal equivalent. Even if the caps are big.
Whats up with that?

Hey Rob

Have you ever used guitar amps from Verellen? Using them for some big rock OD's and its sounding pretty cool.

PS. How's the bathroom window working out?

Haha I started typing this yesterday on my phone decided not to and put it back in my pocket, came back today to ask the question I intended to yesterday.


Regarding the b15 is this what you usually record over driven guitars through? I have one and I've never really explore it as a guitar amp.

Oh, no i thought lehmancarson was talking about bass.
So i was referring to to flip top and svt for bass.
Although the fliptop does sound cool on gtr and so does an SB12.
If you want the 1969-71 stones sound play thru the svt.
A tele sounds like "that" sound.
Really cool when that sound comes out of your hands.....

This is Carson, beard and all

We were using the Good Smoke that was modified to have a reverb on it. Used it for some guitar overdubs, going for a real big sound. Kinda sounded like what the Marshall's of old brought to the table. I've had some problems trying to find guitar amps that can push that kind of air without sounding muddy. Was impressed with the clarity of the Verellen

SVT is still my starting (and usually ending point) for bass, tho
